Re: dropping tank on 99 GT

I recently just did the grommet and pipe filler on my car.

>After raising and supporting your car use the jack stand, and some wood to help evenly distribute the weight of an empty gas tank on the jack stand and remove the straps (3 bolts ~15mm and one swing pin).
>Make sure the fuel filler pipe and all other connections are disconnected and that you have already relieved the fuel pressure
>Slowly lower the gas tank
>I would do this little by little until I can wiggle the filler pipe out of the tank

>>Be careful not to break the end of the fuel filler pipe
